Return of Mughrabi’s body is her Martyr wedding

Issa Karake, Head of the Prisoners' Committee in the Palestinian Parliament: 
"Today is the wedding of Dalal Mughrabi, the woman of the sea, the woman of the Palestinian coast, the woman of Palestine, the symbolic Shahida (Martyr), whose body returns [today] to Lebanon. Although she will return as a Shahida (Martyr), we expect her to return alive, because she lives on in our hearts and in the hearts of all who are free, and all the honored people and all the fighters in the world."

Note: This was said on the day that the body of Dalal Mughrabi was transferred to Hezbollah in return for the bodies of Israeli soldiers. Dalal Mughrabi led the most lethal terror attack in Israel’s history in 1978, when she and other terrorists hijacked a bus and killed 37 civilians, 12 of them children.
